Morning After Christmas

boy crying

Our friends’ six-year-old son woke up crying the day after Christmas. When his mother asked him what was wrong, he replied, “It’s not Christmas anymore!” She consoled him with the fact that he had received many presents, and pointed out that you can’t expect to get gifts every day of the year. Still crying, he said, “It’s not about the presents! I’m sad because it’s not Jesus’ birthday anymore!”

If only those of us who are supposedly more mature could keep our focus on the reason for the season like this young boy!

“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith…”—Hebrews 12:2
